The people behind Cards Against Humanity (this game > http://amzn.to/1M9BsQ7) recently came up with another crazy idea that not only made them a decent amount of cash ($2.25 million) but also gave them tons of free marketing (including this post).
They asked the public for $15 and 150,000 people paid, in return those people would get 8 mystery gifts, so far 3 presents have been pairs of socks (typical ‘joke’ for these guys), another was a day off for a factory’s worth of workers in China’s Pearl River Delta, and then they purchased an original 1962 lino-cut of Picasso’s “Tête de Faune.”
The Picasso artwork, worth about $14,100 is now placed on a laser cutting bench ready to be cut into 150,000 tiny squares and posted piece-by-piece to each purchaser or alternatively donated to the Art Institute of Chicago…
It’s up to the 150,000 people who paid to decide the fate!
